Stats show Richmond Boakye-Yiadom is the best player in Europa League this season

Early days yet, but UEFA's official statistics for the Europa League show Richmond Boakye-Yiadom is the competition's best player so far this season.

In the opening 3-match two qualifying rounds, he has scored 5, which is better than everyone else.

He has an assist, with the highest ranked player on 4.

And, only 2 other players, one on 9 and the other on 11, have better than his 8 shots on targets.

The striker has been in blistering form throughout 2017 and the qualities that made Juventus buy him in the early days of his career are finally emerging.
